Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A manipulative script about dog reincarnation that whacks your emotions like a pinata - that's forgivable. But no mercy for a film charged with canine abuse behind the scenes. It shouldn't happen to a dog. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Jan 27, 2017

Rotten: All the emotional resonance of a dog-themed novelty coffee-table book. – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times, Feb 2, 2017

Rotten: A peculiar kibble of vignettes, wrapping reincarnation and life lessons together in a sappy Hallmark Channel-style doggy sweater. – Brian Lowry,, Jan 30, 2017

Rotten: It's hard to work how who this film is pitched at given the very simple narrative. – Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane, May 31, 2017
